Different Licenses For The MapLogic Layout Manager
The MapLogic Layout Manager has 4 different license levels; Viewer, Basic, Advanced and Pro. Depending on the license level that you have purchased, you will have different tools and capabilities available to you. The following table will give you a quick overview of what you can do at each license level.
The Viewer license is a free license which allows other users to explore the different layouts you have placed in the ArcMap document. Users can activate the different page, series and book layouts as well as preview the pages of a map book or map series.
The user can’t create, modify, print or export map series or map book layouts with a Viewer License.
The Basic license gives the user the ability to create new page and map series layouts in ArcMap. The user can also print map books created by other users using this license. However, none of the map book creation or editing functionality is available to the user at this license level.
The Advanced license enables most of the map book functionality for the extension. This includes creating, editing and printing map books as well as indexing the feature locations in a book.
The Pro license is the highest license level of the MapLogic Layout Manager. At this level users have the ability to create multi-layout sections in the map book. This allows you to create different page layouts for the odd and even pages in the map for two-sided printing.
The Pro user can also create multi-column indexes. For example, if you would like to create an index that show the location of roads in a map book as well as the location of each address range in that road, a Pro license is required.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does MapLogic Layout Manager Change The ArcMap Document?
The extension adds a container to the ArcMap document (Mxd) where it holds layouts, map series and map books. The contents of this contained are displayed in a new tab called Layouts in the ArcMap Table of Contents.
Can a user who does not have the MapLogic Layout Manager extension open an ArcMap document that has been modified by the extension?
Yes. We have designed the extension so that it will allow the Mxd to be opened on other copies of ArcMap whether the extension is present or not.
What will ArcGIS users who don’t have the MapLogic Layout Manager extension see when they open an ArcMap document modified by the extension?
The user will see the layout that was active when the ArcMap document was last saved. However, keep in mind that the MapLogic Layout Manager has a free “Viewer” license level, which allows the user to move around the layouts and preview (but not print) map books.
